ABOUT THE AWARDS
The Children’s Bureau (CB) is committed to refocusing our nation’s child welfare system on strengthening families’ capacity to care for their own children; reducing the numbers of children traumatized by abuse and neglect; and breaking the inter-generational cycle of trauma and maltreatment. The Children’s Bureau Champion Awards recognize agencies, community-based organizations, businesses, courts, individuals, parent leaders, or others who have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to improving the overall health and well-being of our nation’s children and families.
The CB will honor agencies, community-based organizations, businesses, courts, individuals, parent leaders, or others who have made an exceptional contribution to promoting the health and well-being of children and families. Awardees will be publicly recognized at the virtual 23rd National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect (NCCAN) in April 2023. Awardees also will be recognized on the official website of the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), and through social media and other CB information dissemination channels. In addition, they will receive a commemoration of their award in the mail.
